Re: Share a folder via the API

Share a folder via the API

Hi All,

 

I am looking for a way to share a folder once it has been created via the FileRequest process.

 

I'm using the API to send a file request, when the requestee has uploaded the file, a folder is created automatically based on the File Request. I need to be able to find and then share that folder. the only information I hold is the folder name at this point. 

 

Is this possible? what are the steps involved?

 

Thanks

If you just want a shared link to the folder, you can use /2/sharing/create_shared_link_with_settings.

 

Or, if you want to share the folder itself so it can be added to another account, you can use /2/sharing/share_folder to make it into a shared folder, and /2/sharing/add_folder_member to invite other people to it.

 

The Sharing Guide may also be helpful.
